Day 249, Giving Birth

Giving birth is a natural process. Towards the third trimester of your pregnancy your body starts preparing for the moment when your baby would enter the world. Labour and contractions take place before the actual process of giving birth as an indication that your baby its on his way.  For many first time moms, labor is scary. They will describe their perception of birth as scary, painful, nerve wrecking and so on.

When a mom first realises that she is in labor she will be excited, relieved that she has finally gone into labor. At this time the contractions are mild and far apart and many moms may even sleep through this phase.

As labor becomes more active and the pain becomes a little more, mom starts feeling a little worried. She will start to focus and start practicing her breathing exercises and other coping techniques.

Closer to the birth the contractions are very intense. This is when most moms will feel a loss of control and will probably ask for some pain relief. But there is no point in taking any pain medications at this time as birth is just about to happen.

Once the body is completely ready the mom will feel a strong urge to push and bear down. This can also be compared to passing a hard motion. The sensation is unmistakable and mom will be fully aware of the fact that the baby is now ready to come. As the baby’s head crowns she will feel a burning sensation in her perineum as it stretches to accommodate the head of the baby.

As the baby comes thru the contractions pause and mom will feel intense relief and a huge sense of achievement. She is very excited and over whelmed. She is keen to meet her baby and get breast feeding started and at the same time wants to shout from the top of the world that she is a mom.
